    I apologize if its been answered before but for those of us that live in north america is it better to order directly from Thedi or to go through Thurston?

    I guess it depends on what you mean by better.. If you want the best possible price you most likely will save some money going direct to Thedi. if you want assistance with sizing, measurements, a fit jacket, access to the wisdom of the Thurston team then better would be going through them. Not to say that the Thedi team wont help you with all that but never having done it, id think communication with Thurston is a bit easier.
    either way you'll end up with something special

    Not meaning to contradict @Boyo, but I believe going via Thurston is actually cheapier for you US guys. Loocking at the prices TB quotes they appear to be roughly what Thedi charges in Euro, plus you would have to look at import fees when ordering directly.

    Of course I could be wrong and Thedi may charge different prices for different localities (could be one reason his webpage doesn´t quote any prices), e.g. deducting VAT for non-EU orders etc...

    Personally, I'd order directly from Thedi (unless you really want a fit jacket, which still guarantees nothing imo). Theodoros is a master at getting the sizing just right. I don't see how a middleman like Thurston could improve on that.

    It's the conclusion that I have reached too today but didn't want to say nothing, thinking I must've done my math wrong in some way but yeah, seems to me TB is your best bet if you're in the US.

    interesting.. I would've thought TB stood to make some money as the reseller... I stand corrected.

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate the input, and I suppose there is only one way to find out for sure. Just out of curiosity are there any details about Thedi jackets I shouldn’t overlook? At the moment trying to decide wether to keep the chest pocket is my biggest dilemma.

    Not at all, @Boyo! I am sure, TB as one of Thedis biggest resellers get very favourable conditions.
    Actually, I was a bit surprised about the price Theo quoted when I ordered my jacket in person in Saloniki. Of course the master himself measured me up (in more than one sense), and I basically got a bespoke jacket.
